For the College's women's lacrosse team, the start of the season could not have gone much worse.

The Lions went into the game ranked sixth in the nation, but they had something to prove after suffering two defeats the previous week.

As the entire city of Philadelphia (and South Jersey) watched in disbelief as their beloved Eagles lost in a big game once again, I rejoiced.
